Buhay pa rin sila! Roxas, Palawan Mayor partners with USAID for reformation of drug surrenderers


The mayor has not yet given up.

Amid the several criticisms of President Duterte’s drug war, Roxas, Palawan Mayor Maria Angela Sabando continues the fight against illegal drugs through foreign aid.

Roxas, Palawan has tied up with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in coming up with programs for drug users and pushers undergoing rehabilitation.

Sabando recently presented to the officials a possible project for recovering drug surrenderers. Coordinating with the Palawan local government unit is USAID’s Cecilia Isubal.

“We hope the help of our provincial government will not go in vain,” she told the officials.

In 2016, the Palawan government has started securing the funding for the possible establishment of reformatory centers in strategic areas in the southern and northern parts of Palawan.

One step at a time indeed. At least the mayor knows what to do next.
